June 28th shots rung out in the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo. The visiting Archduke Franz Ferdinand of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and his wife have been assassinated. The Austro-Hungarians declare war with the backing of the Kaiser Wilhelm II and the German forces. This causes Russia, France, Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Serbia to all join in the war. The Germans and Austrians form one side and the rest form the other side of the conflict. This is where we find ourselves, in the early days of World War I in Quartermaster General 1914.
In Quartermaster General 1914 there are up to 5 players who take up the roles of the leaders of Germany, Russia, United Kingdom and United States, France and Italy, and Austro-Hungry and Ottoman Empire. For the game I was playing I took Germany and Austro-hungry and the Ottomans and Rick took the rest. This was the late night session of what was a very scaled down virtual BertCon this year (shakes fist at COVID-19).
